(San Bruno, CA) - Junior guard Dominique Carter, paced the West Coast Conference in scoring with 22.6 points per game en route to leading San Francisco to a 6-1 record during the month of December. For her efforts, Carter earned WCC Player of the Month honors for December as announced by the league office.

A three-time All-WCC First Team pick, Carter shot an incredible .600 (60-for-100) from the field to rank second in the WCC, and led the league by shooting at a .630 (17-for-27) clip from beyond the arc. Carter also ranked ninth in the conference with 7.1 rebounds per game, and collected WCC Player of the Week honors twice during the month.

Carter scored a career-high 32 points in a win over San Jose State on December 9, and set another career standard with 14 rebounds in a USF win over Cal Poly on December 15. The Tracy native posted a pair of double-doubles during the month, and led San Francisco to its first six-game winning streak since the 2001-02 season.

Carter enters the WCC opener against San Diego with 1,550 career points, good for fourth place on the USF career scoring list and occupies 13th place on the WCC career points chart.
